    A very entertaining, mostly light hearted and humorous tale of a great individual achievement.

    "Great Book!" I stumbled across this book in passing - looking for something new after having just read a book on the Dalai Lama. Most of the books that I browsed looked like they'd be let-downs after having just read a very inspiring story about His Holiness. I paused to read an excerpt from Dances With Marmots and it sounded like the author had a good sense of humor. I reasoned that even if the storyline was uneventful and full of dry technical information, at least there might be some good jokes in there. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this book isn't just about hiking, it is a book about adventure (mentally, physically, emotionally). I have recommended it to my family and friends and guarantee you'll be chuckling through the whole book. Very inspiring!

    "A Worthy Book" A five star (out of 5) book. I had many laughs because of his humor and writing style. There are many anecdotes about his experience and some history about the area he travels through and also comments about life in general. I read the book completely through in one sitting. It was that good.

    "excellent work" The five months which George Spearing spent on the Pacific Crest Trail (of which I had never heard) are related in great detail: the people and animals (including bears and snakes) he met, and the experiences he had. Quite fascinating, really, and it took some guts to do it and keep on to the end, all the way from Mexico to Canada. There are some excellent photographs too, and it opens up a side of the United States which I didn't really know about until now.

    "Re: Dances With Marmots" i cannot better anything that has been said already, just wish i had the guts to do it, i think in comparison our trails are still in the kindergarten and i am glad they are or i would not have walked any, as long as there are men like George with a sense of humor to write about such walks, i am willing to sit and read about them, cheers George ern
